Artisan weaver making the most of British wool yarns to create beautiful products inspired by the landscapes of northern Britain.
I am passionate about weaving and British wool. Having learned to weave about 20 years ago I have, over the years, turned my hobby into a small business. I am now based in Sedbergh, at the western edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales from where I draw inspiration for the colours and designs of my products.
When I started my journey into the wool trade almost ten years ago, wool was an under-appreciated and under-utilised resource. In the years since, there has been a welcome resurgence of interest in all things wool. Here at Laura's Loom I aim to bring you the highest quality products woven from this wonderful natural fibre. My goal is to create beautiful items in simple classy designs that show off the wool at its very best. In the process I recognise and celebrate my partners: the farmers who raise the sheep and tend the landscape, and the spinners and weavers, dyers and cloth finishers who help me create my products. It is a labour of love woven into each and every piece.
Handwoven by Laura
In addition to my British wool products which are produced in small exclusive batches, I also weave by hand. I take commissions as well as weaving 'on spec' pieces, favouring fine wools and silks for their superior handle, lambswool for its comforting warmth and other natural materials such as linen. I enjoy mixing and matching yarns to create highly textured pieces and I love to play with colour. I often think of weaving as painting with yarn and have been known to make things up as I go along instead of sticking to the rigid written rules of weaving. Rules, after all, are made to be broken!
